Your Overall Goal 

The overall goal of the Erasmus+ programme is to support personal, educational and professional development in the fields of education, training and youthwork throughout Europe. A disorganised project can become chaotic – and that’s no way to reach the finish line! It’s best to be prepared in advance, to give you the perfect opportunity of ultimate success. In this piece, you’ll learn how to organise your Erasmus+ project so you will always stay on track.

Take a Step Back in Time!

Take yourself back to your high school days. Perhaps one of your teachers challenged you with an Erasmus+ project? Maybe it felt like a huge burden? Erasmus+ projects at work can take years to complete. The more you organise your project in advance, the less time it takes, and that’s important for reaching your goal easily, without too many problems.

What You Need to Think About Prior to Embarking on Your Erasmus+ Project

When you are developing and maintaining international activities, it’s important to think about a few things. Firstly, you need to consider how you’re going to implement the activities involved, when the project is under way, but you also need to think about how those activities will continue when the project ends. The instructions below will help you with that continuity:

  1. Define the goals of the project.
  2. Choose your partners and get commitment from them.
  3. Ensure that you have sufficient resources, time and tools for your project.
  4. Gain commitment from those in management roles.
  5. Evaluate and reform the project’s activities.
  6. Make sure communication is planned and continuous.
  7. Use your learning in everyday work and ensure continuity.
